Siobhan Rutledge, 28, married Matt Paterson Lewis, 29, at St Mary's Church followed by a reception at Dodford Manor on 13th May, 2017.
Matt wore a bright navy suit with brown shoes. He knew he wanted to wear blue straight away so it was pretty easy for him.
I tried on about 20 dresses before I found the one. I was going to think about it more and come back but the lady in the boutique said, “If you go into another shop now, what would you ask for?” I would have asked for that dress – so my decision was made.
For my bouquet I chose pink and white roses with gypsophila mixed in. I felt it was a classic option that complemented the theme and venue.
Our guests loved the photo booth and sweet cart.
I wore more make-up than usual and opted for fake lashes to enhance my eyes. I wanted to look as natural as possible.
Our table plan was one of my favourite elements from the day. We used a ladder that had jars of flowers, copper string lights, a personalised sign and the table plan printed onto separate cards, which were pegged onto lace stretched across the rungs.
We had a three-tier cake in the same colours as the bridesmaid's dresses. It tasted great but my favourite part was the personalised topper which said, 'The Patersons' in a gold glitter wooden style to match the table numbers.
We had personalised boxes for our guests to take slices of cake home in.
We used cookies instead of the usual place cards, which we thought was a nice touch.
Lauren was a fabulous photographer, she's very professional but makes you feel really relaxed.
